Information for Observers in the Field

Thanks for your interest in participating in the Buffalo Bayou Christmas Bird Count (CBC).

Those of you who wish to participate as field observers will need to get assigned to an Area. Please click here to see a map of the count circle Areas.

Please contact the Area Leader for the Area in which you would like to count. Generally, observers for these areas meet at approximately 7:00 a.m. — the Area Leader will inform you of the exact meeting time and location (and also about the Countdown Dinner at the end of the day). Those who are not assigned to an area in advance can meet at 6:00 a.m. at the Houston Arboretum & Nature Center, 4501 Woodway, just east of West Loop 610. (In other words, you get to sleep later if you make arrangements in advance.)

PLEASE BE AWARE THAT DURING THE WINTER HOLIDAY SEASON, PEOPLE MAY BE TRAVELING AND THUS MAY NOT BE ABLE TO RESPOND TO YOU IMMEDIATELY. Thank you for your patience.

If our manpower is unevenly distributed, we may ask you to consider switching to another area that may be undermanned.
